Butterworth's work has been included in most of Lurzers Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers worldwide, and has personal work in private collections, most notable his Spanish series ‘La Costa Life’. Ian is passionate about his craft and art, constantly pushing boundaries and looking for the next story. Although a busy commercial photographer, Ian is renowned in the industry for his exceptional  and expansive personal work. “I take a studied rather than snapped approach to my personal work, I like to sit with an idea and develop the concept.   With that there is huge excitement in watching it evolve from concept to styling, shooting, tweaking and finally printing."
